As Winter fades ATC

With the melting going on I was inspired to say farewell to Winter with these last couple ATC's.
Stamped over photo here and added some Dazzling details.

Lilac in Winter ATC

I made this ATC using the photo to stamp feature in Photoshop Elements. Added a bit of Dazzling diamonds to highlight snow and seed pods, framed with Tempting turquoise.
